Leeds United have made an approach to sign West Ham United’s Domingos Quina according to a report from The Mirror.
West Hams academy is noted around the world for producing some of the best youngsters in the country and Quina is seen as one of their top prospects. Some have hailed him as one of the best Portuguese youngsters out there right now and he could be a star at both club and international level. But with Quina only having a year left on his contract and only getting appearances in the cup, he could soon leave the club.
And Leeds are the team hoping to snap him up should Quina decide to leave. Their academy is just as noted as West Ham’s for producing great players and that means they are happy to sign up any talented youngsters who can then continue their development in West Yorkshire. And if they are able to get Quina, it would be a huge boost to them as it is likely that it wouldn’t take very long for the 18-year-old midfielder to break into their first team.
The major issue that Leeds would face in trying to sign Quina is that they are likely to face some competition from Newcastle. This report has said they have expressed an interest in signing him and Quina could do well in their youth system. But if Leeds can offer the Portuguese midfielder a clearer route to the first team, they may be able to win this battle.
